Fewer headaches with yoga?

Yoga therapy may reduce the headache frequency of migraine patients. 

Yoga therapy may reduce the frequency of headaches for people with migraine, according to a meta-analysis scheduled to be published in the May issue of the Journal of Clinical Neuroscience.


  • Current evidence is insufficient for routine clinical use of yoga therapy for migraine. Several studies have explored the efficacy of yoga therapy for migraine patients, but the results are conflicting.


  • The results find that compared to control group for migraine patients, yoga therapy can significantly decrease headache frequency with significant heterogeneity among the studies.


  • Adjuvant yoga therapy may provide additional benefit to reduce the headache frequency in patients with migraine attack.
